More than you could imagine
The SV series just got a whole lot better - ten times better in fact. Boasting over ten times the sample data than the SV-1, the SV2 now has ample memory for all the 72 built-in sounds. And thanks to the 64 memory locations, you can now store your edited favourites for instant access during a performance.
When used in conjunction with the SV2 Editor software, you can even create your own split and layered programs and save them to a quick access location. In fact, a single 'Favourite' can access up to three voices at once! This is ideal for playing a piano/bass split with a layer of strings, for example. Plus, the polyphony of the SV2 now stands at 128 voice, meaning more layering and sustained chording for extended realism.
An accurate and authentic performance
By using state of the art sampling techniques alongside careful instrument preparation, the SV2 delivers an exact and authentic rendition of many classic keyboards. This meant finding the best-maintained instruments and recording them with the latest multi-micing methods. From the release of the hammer to the click of the contacts, every element of these treasured keyboards is preserved in the SV2. What's more, they're saved in the RX layer, meaning you can mix in as much or as little as these authentic nuances are you require.
Obviously the SV2 recreates the full dynamic range of each and every instrument. But to achieve the full effect, the SV2 even recreates timbral and volume changes generated between the dynamic spectrum. It doesn't matter if you're playing at the quietest pianississimo or the largest fortississimo, the SV2 will always produce a three-dimensional sense of presence. It doesn't matter where you're performing, the SV2 will always fill the room you're in.
Stroll through the keyboard hall of fame
Perform on the instruments that defined your childhood. The SV2 houses a treasure trove of classic electro-mechanical, transistorised, tape-driven, analogue, and digital keyboard instruments, all reproduced with unparalleled realism. You now have these coveted classics right at your fingertips. Always in tune, and always in an impeccable playing condition.
Korg has packed the SV2 with electric keyboards. Boasting nearly all of the American tine and reed models, a Japanese electric grand, and even a rare German electric piano, you're sure to be impressed by the SV2. Looking for electronic pianos? You can choose from analogue, digital, VPM, FM, and sampled pianos, even the popular Korg M1. More of an organ musician? Scroll through VOX combo, Italian transistor, or American tube organs, plus new church and cathedral organs. Not just key instruments though. The SV2 contains mallets, choir, brass, guitar, bass, and synths for creating rich layers.
A piano at heart
At the touch of a button, you can summon some of the greatest sounding pianos from around the world. Depending on what sound you're looking for, you can choose from leading German, Italian, Austrian, and Japanese instrument makers. For something a little more intimate, you have the choice of a fantastic honky-tonk piano and even a genuine 'tack' piano. For a more regal setting, the SV2 features two gorgeous harpsichords; one French and one Italian. Play these instruments on their own, layered with another sound, or split across the keyboard. The flexibility with the SV2 is truly fantastic.
